About Yesterday: One of the things about baseball is there is no time to lick your wounds. Amidst the cloud of injures rearing itself again, there is still a ballgame to be played against Toronto, a team that is going nowhere…Read More
Following a tough night in Beantown, the Yankees came back against the Sox on Saturday afternoon, riding a good start by JA Happ to a 5-1 victory. The Yankees got runs when they needed them, and the Sox just didn’t have an answer at the plate today.

The Yankees Win! A nice 7-0 victory.
In this article we look at the game, Masahiro Tanaka, Aaron Judge, and the big news that MLB admits that it made a mistake in the Dodgers game on Saturday. (Thanks to longtime reader Fuster for breaking this story).
Here are my perspectives…Read More
The Yankees are quite simply playing fantastic baseball over the last couple of weeks, winning 7 of their last 9. The Yankees beat up on the Rockies on Saturday, winning by a score of 11-5 while extending their winning streak to 5 games. The offense did all of their damage without the benefit of a home run, Tanaka was efficient until a disastrous 6th inning, and Luke Voit avoided serious injury after a scary moment in the 4th inning. Add it all up, and the Yankees are one game from a sweep.

The Yanks got an up-close-and-personal look at potential trade target, Marcus Stroman, during today’s rubber match. While Stroman spun a decent game for the Jays, Tanaka was better, and one crazy slide on a wild pitch gave the Yankees a series win in their first series since the All-Star break, 4-2.Read More
In the first ever MLB sanctioned game played in Europe, the Yankees and the Red Sox combined to do some amazing (and other absolutely terrible) things.
Of the amazing things, the two teams combined to score 30 runs, rack up 37 hits, put up four separate half innings scoring 6 runs, all while not committing a single error over 4 hours and 42 minutes of baseball.
Of the terrible things, neither starting pitcher, Rick Porcello or Masahiro Tanaka was able to pitch through the first inning, which ended up taking an hour of time by itself, and each team needed to use 8 pitchers to get through 9 innings of baseball.
However, the most terrible thing was that the time it felt like the Yankees had easily secured the victory were too short. Especially with them having leads of 6 and 11 runs at separate points during the game.
I truly don’t know if what I watched yesterday was a baseball game or a real life, international exhibition to mimic a kid turning a video game to easy mode, but because the Yankees won I can’t be upset.Read More
